To anyone doing the brackets for this, just got this email from DGPT...

1. Thank your for playing.
2. We have done the final update for players that will not be able to make it. The most recent drops are Cale Leiviska, Cam Colglazier and Anthony Barela.
3. You can go back to the bracket to modify your picks.


...here is the previous list of who's playing:

Is it just me, or does the buzz not seem like it's there for this event? This thread just got started today, haven't seen a ton of other steam on social media. Late season burnout?

I feel the same way, and it's too bad, because I feel like this is the most interesting format for a tournament, and last years edition was really enjoyable to watch.

I think it's more a product of people not being familiar enough with the format. I think this event will need a few solid years to build some prestige before there will be that buzzz you speak of.

I'm guessing equal parts burn out, overshadowed by the events of the last two weeks (not excluding the release of the new rule book), and it being a brand new event. Yes, they did it last year, but it was immediately after the GMC. Now it's a month since the last DGPT event and it's a course no one really knows. It feels new.

The format of the event is potentially a factor as well. I think it's cool but anything that isn't the norm tends to be viewed with skepticism by some.

There are too many "championships" and too many "tours." Heck, the World Championship took place 4 months ago!

I was about to post this.

Also, the field not being present on PDGA Tour pre-reg list was far from normal, so I didn't even know at first search who was playing.
